When technology fails: self-reliance and coping with emergency
February 6, 2015
Tahoe Silicon Mountain next week will welcome Matthew Stein to present: "When Technology Fails: Self-Reliance and Coping with the Long Emergency."
Have you ever thought about what would happen if society faced long-term failures of the electrical grid and other central services?
Right now, there is a storm brewing on the horizon with six long-term global trends converging on collapse.
Stein will discuss why he thinks our society is vulnerable and what we can collectively and individually do to be more self-reliant, sustainable, and better prepared to cope with this approaching storm.
Stein, local bestselling author, MIT-trained engineer and green builder, will discuss the scientific reasons that make this scenario not only possible, but highly likely, and what we can do about it on a personal, community, and global level.
